So last night the Mets lost, to the tune of 7-5 to the Marlins, dropping them officially into second place by 1/2 game behind the Phils, who won last night. I see that the Marlins have the power to drop the Mets into second place a lot. But I digress...
So it seems like I missed all the good stuff. I went to a bar last night to watch the game, and lo and behold, Mike Pelfrey immediately loses his shit. Apparently, he looked dominant up until that point. (I missed the first three full innings)
I go outside with my friend, who was grabbing a smoke. I come back in, Damion Easley had hit a 3-run HR to bring the game within one (5-4 was the score, for you folks keeping track at home).
Then I get settled back into my seat when Dan Uggla hit a 2-run HR to bring the game 7-4.
So what happens when I get in my car? The Mets score one more in the 9th to battle back.
I should have just followed my gut and left after the Easley home run.
So you can just blame me for the Mets losing. Not the bullpen, not Big Pelf, not Jerry Manuel. Heck, not even Willie Randolph.
But no matter. Philly plays tonight. And they're gonna lose. So nyah nyah. We'll be tied for first then.
Speaking of "whatever," can you believe this shit going on with Manny and the Sox? Seriously, can any Red Sox fan (Michael Leggett or Peter?) tell me what the real deal is with Manny? He went out of his way to say he loved the fans (and I know that's true). But why is he trying so hard to get out of town? He's a legend there.
BTW, it is trading deadline day...so I will probably have another post later in the day, when all is said and done...
And PS how much you want to bet that if the Red Sox orchestrate this three-way trade, that Manny will be like -- psych!
